The best solution, as usual, would be to un-release the progression 2.0 update.
-Remove maintenance IMMEDIATELY instead of waiting for unknown time until they can balance the new system.
-Remove tier system IMMEDIATELY and open the way for the current tiered designs to add to the pool of paid cosmetics.
-Removal of tiers means less artificial divides on matchmaking, speeding up queues INSTANTLY.
-Return to when the game was AWESOME will bring back a lot of old players who quit over the mistake that was 2.0
-More players on top of an already-improved matchmaking system = epic win.
I've been saying this off and on since the devs decided to trash the best parts of the game. It was true then, it's true now, it will be true if and when they actually get around to replacing maintenance with the planned new system (which would be easier to balance without a tier system and thus make it into circulation faster).
^ everything he said 100%
Until then, you will find me and loads more at Fractured Space or other games until they un-bork what was a promising game, i kinda regret pumping a ton of cash into it once that stupid progression update occured, instead of improving the game they seemingly just gave up and tried to just do a weak implimentation of various WOT features for absolutely no good reason, all it did was make a load of their playerbase jump the sinking ship, this is why we have the large wait times...
